WTF? I don't even get the meaning of this insult.

However, as we're on the subject of Febreze, I'd like to take a moment
to mount my personal soap box against the stuff. I know that a lot of
people (fighters especially) use this to "remove odor" from stuff and
on behalf of all those with allergies, asthma and chemical
sensitivities I'd like to make a request that you stop using it.
Despite the ads I can tell you in all honesty that it doesn't remove
anything, just covers up the existing stink with another, like any
other "air freshener". It doesn't clean or disinfect the item in
question and it can cause breathing problems for some of your more
sensitive friends. There's nothing you can "fix" with Febreze that I
can't fix better with laundering, a spritz of vodka (applied to the
object, not imbibed ;) or the good old solution of a sachet of herbs
or spices. Not to mention bleach, lemon juice, vinegar, sunlight.
Yeah, I'm a perfectionist and not afraid to experiment :)

I've taken dog stink out of couches, foot stink out of shoes and sweat
stink out of armor among other things. I've tried every solution in
the book, and Febreze has always come out in last place (yes, I did
try it a few times and always had to do something else after to
actually fix the problem). If you want my advice on how to get a smell
out, please ask and I'll be happy to share whatever information I have

Turning lemons into a lemon-scented-soap-box :)
